The Grand Finale: Last Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Rolls Off Production Line

Written By:

The last and final Rolls-Royce Phantom VII has glided out of the British luxury carmaker's production facility and headquarters in Goodwood, England 13 years after the first one made its way out into the world and redefined what a luxury car should be. 

The final Phantom VII is a one-off that was built on a Phantom Extended Wheelbase chassis. The last Phantom VII boasts of a nautical theme and has been built for a ‘connoisseur collector' of Rolls-Royce vehicles and includes features mimicking an ocean liner.

On the outside, the last of the Phantom VII line is painted in a velvet blue colour is a nod to the colour of the ocean. The exterior colour of the Phantom is contrasted by the pinstripes on the tyres and the solid silver Spirit of Ecstacy.

The interiors of the last Phantom VII are done up in white and powder blue leather with the white lambskin featuring a hand-cut wake effect, a nod to the fact that this final Phantom has passed, leaving the world in its own wake.

Other nautical detail work include the clocks featured on the dash and the partition wall which have been designed to echo the style of the radio clocks that adorned grand ocean liners. The clocks feature a rotating bezel showing off 24 time zones. The owner can adjust the bezel to match which time zone he finds himself in.

Powering the final Phantom VII is Rolls-Royce's massive naturally aspirated 6.75-litre V12 that produces 454bhp and 720Nm of torque enough for a 0-100km/h sprint of around 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 240km/h.
